A convenience store is slated to open on 43rd Ave (bet. 43rd and 44th Streets) within the next month.
The store, which will be located at 43-25 43rd Ave., will be selling newspapers, candy, cigarettes, cigars, beer and lotto tickets.
The space was formerly occupied by Quest Realty, which closed at the end of April.
On this block, two restaurants will be opening this summer. Habibi, a Lebanese eatery, is expected to open next month; meanwhile, the Romanian Garden will be moving from Skillman Ave to this block in coming months.
it coulda been a thai place or a nail salon. look on the bright side!
Another convenience store? Good luck.
🙁 With Met Foods and a convenience store a block away in one direction, and another market place a block away in the other, I’d be surprised to see this new store last a year. I agree with Lucky Lu here. I’d rather see some other type of store open (unique like “April Glass” for example).
It is good news to hear about the convience store opening because the vegtable store had alot of convience store had aot of the same items and made us walk up to queen blvd and subways for these things now we do not have to walk that far expecialy the seniors who will have more of a convience for themselves.
Great job of reporting as well.
Another dumpy convenience store is not what we need. I get really depressed seeing so many of these places around. I’m not sure how people are keeping these places open.
